Re: Things I Dislike About My i3

Hmmm... Lack of roof rack hardpoints. Sucks I'm stuck sticking suction cups to my roof. Lack of volume un-mute I've complained about previously. If I'm muted, and I select an audio source, unmute my dang audio! Lack of seat bolstering. Just a little. Please? Lack of sun visors. I mean, fer reelz BMW...

Re: Only get a white light when plug in L2 Charger.

I'm not sure about just replacing the handle- it looks easier to replace the cord and the handle; I have to look into it. I didn't price it out, but I'm assuming adding the cord could significantly add to the cost? Here's a step-by-step write-up with photos on another forum by a user who replaced t...

Re: Only get a white light when plug in L2 Charger.

I would still plug in to a different L2 EVSE, just to absolutely eliminate the possibility of this being an issue with your i3 being able to receive 240v. I doubt this is the case, but it's possible. Have you inspected your charging port for signs of wear or damage? The problem is most likely the J1...

Re: Only get a white light when plug in L2 Charger.

Is this your personal EVSE? Or has it happened on multiple L2 units? Does it charge OK using your L1 Occasional-Use Charger?

Just trying to troubleshoot whether it's the car, L2 EVSEs in particular, or the specific charging plug you happen to be having this problem with.

Re: I3 vs i3s new member

...If the performance gains aren’t that significant on the S model... Ha! Know what's funny? "Performance" to many an i3 owner = "Range" so in that respect the i3 "outperforms" the i3s. :) ...is getting a 2017 a lot better option than 2016 and below models? Main difference is a 50% increase in batt...

Windshield Wipers "Thumping" Windshield...

Any ideas on the cause / solution to this one? While stopped or at slow speeds, the wipers make a thumping noise right as they begin the upward strike -- almost as if they were beginning lifted off the glass, and being dropped onto it. This isn't the dry rubber dragging noise. It's a single, loud "T...

Re: Heated Seat Issue

De verwarming van bestuurderszitting van mijn i3 viel al een tijdje steeds na 3 minuten uit. De auto gaf geen storing aan. In het volle vertrouwen op BMW zag ik het een tijdje aan. een storingsmelding bleef uit. Afspraak bij de dealer voor een analyse. Uw zitting heeft kortsluiting. Moet vervangen....

Re: How Long Do Your Dash Lights Stay On

For what it's worth, right off the bat I thought this was odd, that I noticed these staying on an hour or so after I parked, but not on the next morning.

Re: How Long Do Your Dash Lights Stay On

The indicator lights you listed behave similarly to mine in my 2017 BEV.

Re: New member, charging question.

...Starting in 2015, the maximum OUC charging power is 1200 W. I don't know whether later OUC's are still only 1200 W... This is just a semantic point (for clarity) but the car itself is capable utilizing 1at least 6 Amps at Level 1 (120V), or 1900 watts. So regardless of what amperage EVSE the car...
